That being said Android hardware is far superior to anything you can get for WP7 - particularly on Sprint - they seem to have chosen one of the smallest screened, bulkiest WP7 phones available. The Arrive is probalby the last WP7 hardare I would have picked if I was getting WP7. Android has a number of distinct advantages but I use my phone for 2 things primarily - a phone and accessing e-mail, calendar and contacts from Exchange. I tried touchdown and it still is far behind WP7 as a calendar/contact/email platform.

However if you use it for many other things I can definitely see the attraction of Android. It is extremely flexible. I went with the EVO 3D because the hardware seems robust - not for the OS and I didn't go with the Arrive as the hardware sucks donkey balls.
wp7 does not need top of the line out of this world hardware to provide a good user experience. I just recently loaded the mango beta onto my arrive and everything is flying even more so than on NoDo. but since this is the android section ill leave it at that but yea I've come from WM too starting on an ipaq h1910 then Dell axim x51v and finally to TP1 and 2.

IMHO - a good experience with a phone includes a large screen, a slim design, plenty of expandable storage, 4G for tethering, BT 3.x or 4.x to reduce battery drain are part of the good experience. The Arrive is severely lacking in those areas - notice I didn't mention the processor - but all the other items that make a phone top of the line.

lot of things I could say to this but it has no place here in the android section. so I'll reserve this discussion for another thread elsewhere.

Re: First time Android user (hardcore WM fan)

I came from the TP1, to the 3vo. Pretty happy so far.

Unless MS gets a real "app store" in the very near future, they are done in the Mobile market. I was one of the few that kinda liked the TP1, but it was a constant battle keeping it from crashing.

I bought a cheap android tablet and noticed a TON of apps that I could easily put to use on a daily basis for my work. So I knew my next phone would be android based. The one big reason I went with Winmo on my last phone was the fact I could put a standalone GPS app on it. Since I could do the same on the 3vo, no reason to stay anymore.

Re: First time Android user (hardcore WM fan)

Coming from a TP2, I am amazed at how fast and smooth the 3vo responds to user input. I thought I would never be able to do without the hard keyboard but the android voice recognition makes texting easy. I was in the dark ages with WM and did not know it.

Re: First time Android user (hardcore WM fan)

Well i actually recognize a lot of your usernames from the WM forums and yes I went through all the WM phones and liked them a lot. I even tried the Arrive and I will admit that Microsoft is on the right track but not there yet, instead of making a good OS they are trying to compete with Apple or be like them. One of the great things about WM was you could plug your phone in and transfer files. Now you have to go through the Zune app.

Android is on the right track. My EVO 3D is the fastest phone I've ever owned. With swype I no longer need a physical keyboard. As of right now HTC is at the top of phone makers they now set the standard. I don't look at the 3D as a gimmick but a smart marketing angle. 3D is the newest technology going right now so why not take advantage of it. You can only share your 3D photos with other 3D users so look at how many people have bought more then one. All in all I'm loving this phone and until they give me a reason I will stay with HTC for all my future phones.
